The importance of a control monitor:
A control dosimeter is included with each shipment to monitor radiation received in transit or while stored in your facility. It’s important to return this unit with that original shipment grouping for accurate analysis by the LANDAUER laboratory.
Control dosimeter exposure is read and subtracted from each individual dosimeter in the shipment – separating the occupational dose from the background exposure.
Store Control dosimeters away from:
- Radioactive sources
- X-ray rooms
- Other dosimeters
Depending on the size of your account/s, you may have multiple Control dosimeters that need to be included with the overall badge return shipments each cycle.
Want to know more about Control dosimeters if you have a larger dosimetry program? We have options to help.
If you return dosimeters in many shipments instead of one, we can arrange to routinely ship additional control dosimeters so you can keep each Control with your subaccount or department grouping.
Option: Subaccount or Department Control Dosimeter
Let us know if you prefer a Control dosimeter for each department if you store those in different locations at your facility. These can be added even if you have a master Control dosimeter.
Option: Master Control Dosimeter
If you store a larger number of dosimeters in one place, we can replace the subaccount dosimeters with one Master Control.
